We collaborate primarily with the educational, social service, and community health sectors, in their work with children, adolescents, and adults, including those who are vulnerable or have special needs.

CRECS research

We strive to represent the University of Ottawa, and our co-sponsoring faculties (Social Sciences and Education), in these service sectors. We aim to produce new knowledge and mobilize existing knowledge to improve practice and policy. We also provide mentoring to many students, particularly those pursuing their graduate studies, and those enrolled in our two micro-training programs: (1) Evaluation of Social and Health Programs and Policies, and (2) Program Evaluation in a Professional Contexts.

Indigenous Affirmation

We pay respect to the Algonquin people, who are the traditional guardians of this land. We acknowledge their longstanding relationship with this territory, which remains unceded. 

We pay respect to all Indigenous people in this region, from all nations across Canada, who call Ottawa home. 

We acknowledge the traditional knowledge keepers, both young and old. And we honour their courageous leaders: past, present, and future.
